This happy pup is named Matilda, she is two months old and was recently picked up as a stray and brought to the shelter with her irritated skin and tummy full of parasites. For Teresa Bowles-Chiofalo of Pibbles & More Animal Rescue, Matilda was clearly “nothing less than perfect”.
Santina Sanders, a volunteer at the Douglas County Animal Shelter in Georgia, told The Dodo:
And she gave the sweetest kisses. It was the cutest thing I’ve ever seen.”
Teresa went to the shelter on Wednesday to pick up Matilda and place her in foster care. And Matilda was all the way with a big smile on her face and her tail wagging “a mile a minute”.
Happy puppy can’t believe he’s finally leaving the shelter
“He waved her around for an hour and a half the whole way.”
She was so touched by Matilda’s courtesy that she stopped the car several times to pamper her along the way. Matilda now resides with her adoptive mother Kerrie Rich, who reports that after just a few days, Matilda has grown into an even more charming and wonderful pup.
Mathilde is a very smiling dog despite the abandonment. She gives lots of kisses and barks a little, which she displays in an effort to get Kerrie’s other dog to play with her (sometimes successfully).
She loves to play with toys and “bounces like a bunny” when excited. And of course, that line doesn’t stop.
“She’s wagging her tail so hard she’s stepping sideways.”
The only time Matilda really stopped wagging her tail was when Kerrie tried to put a collar on her. Kerrie thinks the necklace must have hurt a little, because of Matilda’s skin irritation. So, she’ll try again when her skin starts to feel better.
So when Matilda receives her collar she will also be available for adoption, one very lucky family will be able to enjoy this little dog forever.
Matilda is in foster care
Kerrie knows it will be hard to give up Matilda, just as it has always been hard for her to give up the other dogs in her care. But it’s a necessary part, to keep saving lives.
“Once a puppy is adopted, it opens up a space in my home to save another, which opens up another space at the shelter.”
Until then, Kerrie will enjoy every second she has with Matilda.
